How can I make this work?
« on: October 30, 2016, 09:58:47 AM »
So I am a newish space wolf player. I've got some wolf cavalry and whatnot, and they are undeniably effective...
but what I'd really like to do is play a more 5th edition style army with mostly troops in transports. Maybe long fangs, maybe razorbacks, maybe land raiders, maybe I could throw in a flyer... maybe vindicators or predators... Lone wolves. Wolf guard. Maybe skyclaws. I want something more viking-y than wolf-y. Maybe rune priests. Maybe landspeeders (I just have one).

Whenever I've tried to do that, I just can't pull it off. There's no punch, and all of my guys just get melted by helldrakes or something. No contest.
Putting power fists or axes on the grey hunters doesn't seem to help much.
What can I do? Obviously it's not going to be optimal, but what can I put in there make it least-bad?

Look at a Ragnar Blackmane army. I think you will like playing a drop pod army. It has worked great for me.
